LenWhale White-08 regular season. Result- SuperBowl

"buh, buh I was just taking it to hang up cause I can say I played the Pittsburgh Steelers"

Bullshit. Anyone who was at the game saw you and Ed Reed wiping sweat with it and rubbing that fact in to the fans as you went towards the tunnel. They might have been more subtle about how they disrespected it cause theyre pussies - but it is disrespecting no less

So glad we won today. If the ravens were 10-2 right now I don't think I'd handle it very well.

We just beat Baltimore with Woodley out, Polamalu playing half ass, Ike hurt mid game, a 3rd string RT, and our Center playing Guard...and we did it IN THEIR HOUSE! Baltimore has a VERY good home record and considered "Elite" by so many....I'm really starting to believe that the curse is real, no joke. I'm not a bit supersticious but there's something to it. Forget about the SB in 05, look what happened to TJ's career after 05. And the Titans haven't been shit since stomping the towel...this shit is real lol.

^Nah, there is no real "curse"... it's just hard to beat us twice in the same year, especially in big games against pretenders. Titans aren't shit. Ravens aren't shit. Bengals....lololol....

Well, Myron Cope did once say that the 'Terrible Towel was poised to strike' I don't know, I'm not much of a superstitious person either, but I do have beliefs that their is something to the Terrible Towel. It's too much of a coincidence that everyone that has messed with it ended losing or never been the same. I say It's much like the Madden curse in my opinion.

Actually, Lendale White was having quite the year in 08. He and Chris Johnson were being called Smash and Dash or something like that. Titans solidified the #1 seed that day that he and Keith Bullock stomped the towel. Then they went out and lost to the #6 seed in their first playoff game. Lendale and Bullock both out of football quickly thereafter.

If Ray Rice goes down with a season ending injury, this year or next, I may start to believe too.

The ratbirds have already experienced the curse before . . .

Before the September 29, 2008, Steelers game at Heinz Field, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason stomped on a Terrible Towel. The Ravens then went on to lose all three of their 2008 season games against the Steelers, including the 2008 AFC Championship Game.


"I did not see the Terrible Towel as witchcraft to hex the enemy. It would be a positive force, driving the Steelers to superhuman performance, but if it experienced a yen for mischief and created fatal mistakes by opponents, I would tolerate that."

Next year they should put the towel on the cover of Madden..... There will be a giant power struggle between the curses and people WILL DIE in the process........

But alas, the chances of us actually playing again this year are relatively slim. The most likely matchup would be in the AFCCG - and I have a feeling neither of our teams will be making it that far :)

I know Steeler nation may be throwing in the "towel" right now due to the bad loss
sunday but if we get in the playoffs we will get the ratbirds first round. A win over them in the playoffs will continue the terrible towel curse and make up for all the bad losses this season.

To be honest, you'd think you guys had won the Super Bowl after beating us last week... Perhaps the team had the same mindset?

Big win = big emotion. Sometimes it can be hard to keep up that level of emotion in the game afterwards.

The Steelers have a fresh memory of a Super Bowl win, hell even a Super Bowl appearance. The Steelers and their fans know what it feels like and beating the "Can't get right" Ratbirds ain't it.

I'm sure we're the only team ever to give our coach a gatorade bath during the regular season ever, right?

I'm not a fan of it, and was kind of annoyed when they did it the second time, but frankly, who cares? It's like you guys use it for fap material or something.

In professional football? Yes...they are. Or at the very least, the only team to do it when no division or playoff berth has been clinched. I guess there's a slight chance that some bottom feeder team that has never won anything or clinched a division before has done this in some dusty recess of NFL history.

Then don't bring up how the fans and players celebrated after beating the Ravens when you know full well that your team made giant jackasses out of themselves (twice) last season by giving Harbaugh golden gatorade showers.

But hey...no one should be surprised, they do it in preseason too apparently.

We were discussion emotion after the game and leading into how you play the next week. Not gatorade baths.

I wasn't making any snarky comment on how the Steelers reacted to last weeks win. It was definitely a big win. Only that your team was obviously on an emotional high after the win and then came out the next week and got dominated by a team that everyone thought you were going to beat.

really, neither Ravens or Steelers fans have much to brag about right now. Who knows Terps, we could beat you again in the playoffs, and with the lack of discipline this team has, do the same thing all over again and not show up the following week.

Sorry - that was regarding the reaction in this forum - I should have been more specific. And frankly, if you look at the jubilation on the boards, it was insane.

100% agree. I don't really think either of our teams has a chance in the playoffs currently. But you never know, it's all about who gets hot at the right time. We're both suffering from a ton of injuries (with many players that won't return at all this season), so the ability to "get hot" is diminished, but still there nonetheless.

That came from the fact that alot of us didn't expect Batch to play that way and for us to come out with a win in Bmore. And the fact that Batch played horribly the week before and that win will go down in history as the "3rd string old geezer beat you" game.

I agree, it is the best rivalry in football.
Pittsburgh's gotten the better of it, but it's been more even recently. The real difference to this rivalry is the fact that the Steelers have won all of the truly big games. The Ravens haven't been able to win in the playoffs or even in a late season division clinching situation against the Steelers.

The best part of this rivalry is that both teams are 1-2 in the division almost every year and are usually in the playoff mix until the last week of the season. There's always something on the line in these games.

Packers-Bears is probably #2 IMO. I know Dallas-Skins folks say theirs is best, but both teams have been invisible in the playoffs for most of the last 15 years.

yea, I'm getting a little sick of hearing how great the NFC East rivalries are. When the Broncos played the Raiders, Manning was talking about the great AFC West rivalries. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

IMO, at least in the past 5 seasons, no rivalry has had as much on the line as our games have. Whether it be division, playoff advancement, or to go to the SB. Not too many teams have playoff rematches like every other season
